Circle of Wellness
A Local Legacy

The circle is an important symbol for Native Americans. It represents the four seasons, the heavens and the earth, the universe, and the cycle of life. The idea behind the Circle of Wellness organization is to keep Native American Indian traditions alive, while helping Native Americans in Utah get a good education, start businesses, and become satisfied members of their community.

More than 32,000 Native Americans live in Utah. They want to remember their native history and traditions, which is why they created a special cultural center to preserve these traditions and unite the Utah Native American community. The circle was a good symbol to choose for this center because a circle also stands for mental, physical, spiritual and emotional health and the wholeness of a community.
